BotanoLogos is a great place to start your herbal studies! You might like to start with our Herbal Basics for Everyone recorded webinar. It includes 6 hours of lectures by Patricia Kyritsi Howell and lots of great handouts. Once you purchase the webinar ($25.00), you can access it anytime you like for one year. Our Foundations of Herbalism Program, offered annually in a virtual format, is a more in-depth 120-hour training in the practice of herbalism. Read more about this program here.
All shorter classes and webinars require payment in full to register.
Our Foundations of Herbalism requires a deposit when your register with the option of paying your tuition balance in full or making monthly payments. If you choose monthly payments, we’ll automatically process your payment using your credit or debit card on the 5th of each month. If your payment does not go through for any reason, you will be notified via email and have two days to add funds to your account to cover the amount, or contact us with an alternate payment method. If you fail to make a monthly payment, you’ll lose access to the program until your account is up to date. We are always willing to work with students to renegotiate payment plans if needed.
Questions about payment options? Please send us an email.
